Great place to go if you want to get away from car traffic. Can get warm, so take water. We saw people allowing their dogs to poop and not cleaning it up, but other than that-friendly place to get outside

Nice trail I mountain bike it often you won't find anything like it in the area . Watch out for the sketchy people around moose park. There are many different starting point I usually park near moose park and start there

Great trail! We love to go bicycling with the whole family. The trail is wide so people can easily pass each other safely.

it is a nice trail, i go every weekend for endurance runs.
recomend it.

Great trail for beginner to moderate. If you want a little challenge go off the paved path and onto the trail along the water. You can make it as long or as short as you'd like.

With a myriad of single track trails on both sides of the nice 2 way (marked)asphalt main trail that runs the mostly flat but quite curvy 4.5 mi route from near downtown to Claus Rd to the east, this scenic trail boasts, a main park with 4 tennis courts and a large covered picnic area, basketball hoops, and 2 children's play grounds. Dry Creek is never quite dry and runs wild like a river during the short rain season, then morphs back to it's lazy slow moving self during the other 10 months. Don't forget the 3 separate sets of 9 holes for some intense disc golf, and the nearby Creekside GC.
This all around recreation area is Modesto's best outdoor family excercise location, IMHO of course.

Definitely not what I would Consider a "hike" but it is a lovely trail for a bike ride or a morning jog.

It's a nice place to jog or bike ride, it is popular so best times are weekday mornings when there are less people.

Not a bad trail for a bike ride. Can be a lot of people on the trail walking and riding though.

I went and it was fun, but my car got broken into and everything was stolen out of it. Be cautious.
